  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

What's the logic behind having the menu twice (desktop)?
I think one is for sub categories and one is for general categories. I seems to look normal to me. Just because something is there twice doesn't mean it's a bad thing.

Another thought, one is at the top of the page redargless of which page you're on, while the lower menu bar is only for the home page.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

They serve completely different functions.

The first is the general site navigation (which appears on every page of the site)
The second is a filter to narrow the latest posts to the category that interests you most
(for example I am not interested in any credit card posts, I just want to see the latest airfare deals)

very nice job. I agree with the 1 or 2 other people who mentioned that the white background was a bit harsh on my eyes.

It would be nice to have the option to go to different pages like on the bottom of the current website. Sometimes I like to peruse through historical posts.

Are you referring to the background? Looks beautiful! (So far I see it only on the Israel page.)

I meant the weather, exchange rate, flight search in the sidebar

Very cool. Just around the flight search there's a nearly invisible outline. It looks unprofessional.

It's a 3rd party script I'm testing.. Probably won't keep it.

Thanks for the feedback

Same issue here
I wasn't able to login using my DDF account to leave a comment. It opened the window to login to my DDF account, login was successful but the window remained opened and once I closed it, I need to login again. Same thing happened each time.

Now I don't see the login option at all. I guess it's under construction.

On Andriod Mobil

When you open the search page and change your mind, and try going back, if I use the back button, from my phone it closes the page. If I X  it, its fine.

when clicking buy this item, it should take you to the amazon lisitng, it should not add the item to the cart. As alot of times I still want to check out the item before buying it. (specially if the deal expired, but wasn't flagged as expired, then you might order it without chapping that the price went up)

Also i think, that for amazon deals, the "buy it now" button should be the the traditional amazon button.

That may be nice, but may also look awkward if it doesn't stand right with the overall style.

+100
The current beige background makes it so much easier especially on mobile.
Oh, and the two lowercase d's ain't so bad after all.

Still can't figure out how to login to leave comments on the beta site. I see others have been able to - is there a step I'm missing? I click on the DD login button, it opens the DDF login, I login successfully then close the window and DDMS refreshes and I'm back to square one.
